Repack Haiku #179 (John Wockenfuss)

Required reading:
Night Owl's post "Brush With Greatness"
Hard hits have a cost
1982 Fleer #286 John Wockenfuss

When I pulled this card, I immediately thought about the fantastic article written by fellow blogger Night Owl, who had a chance to interview Wockenfuss. Both the blog post and the newspaper article it's inspired by are worth your time. Sadly, Wockenfuss is battling dementia, but Greg uses baseball cards to help him connect with some baseball memories.


  1. Yeah... that was a classic Night Owl post. Normally... I'll tend to skim a lot of the longer blog posts, but that post is one of the ones where I took the time to read the entire post.

  2. Good timing: the article was published one year ago this week.

  3. NO's Wockenfuss story was one of the best posts I've read in quite a while.
